+1 We should look at the big picture and keep the discussion going until
we know where to go long-term.  Further, why not look at the other free
projects that have solved the problem already?

For example, I keep hearing about how Blender does a fantastic job with
their UI, which is multi-platform and yet highly praised.  The UI caters
perfectly to the program and to the people who use it.  That aligns with
the "Emacs way" more than fighting GUI frameworks that keep changing
with UX fashion like Gnome and GTK do, in my opinion.

Could we learn anything from Blender?  Obviously, Emacs has different
requirements, such as a more advanced "text view" component, but what
about the rest?
